Coming to life in celebration of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, Princess Cruises will “sharkify” Caribbean Princess with its “Summer of Shark” showcased on eight Northern Hemisphere summer sailings, from now through July 27, 2019.
As part of the cruise line’s Discovery at SEA program, Caribbean Princess will be celebrating sharks all season with a variety of activities and games that will challenge adults and kids alike on the myths and interesting facts about sharks. Shark Week programming will be available on stateroom televisions, as well as a special premier party with exclusive content available on June 15 in advance of the television airings. Premier content will also be available on 12 other ships sailing in Alaska and Europe.
“We anticipate our Aussie and Kiwi guests sailing with us to destinations across Alaska, Europe and the Caribbean will be captivated by our Season of Shark activities. From décor to food and beverage, we’re thrilled our Shark Week season has become a popular celebration with guests through our exclusive partnership with Discovery.” Said Princess Cruises Director of Marketing and Sales, Nick Ferguson.
Children and teens will enjoy shark-themed fun in Camp Discovery youth and teen centres. Kids can turn into their favorite type of shark with glitter tattoos and shark face painting, or create arts and crafts to take home, including shark teeth jewelry and shark clay models. There is even a Family Fun Fair with special activities.
Adults and kids alike can get into the spirit with specialty cocktails and mocktails that have been creatively crafted including a Shark Attack Margarita, tropical Great Blue Shark and mocktails including a Shark Bite or Super Strawberry Shark Chum. In addition, themed food items will also be served, including shark cookies and even shark-themed food carvings on display.
